If you are looking for something fun to do outdoors this month, the US National Whitewater Center is worth a day trip. From a shady lunch overlooking the wildwater kayak course to a quiet canoe or paddleboard on the river, there is something for everyone. If you have friends or family visiting with kids, relax in the shade while the kids traverse the ropes courses and ziplines (there are over 13 options combined). Join the family on a multi-generational whitewater rafting trip on the manmade rapids. Or watch the adventerers scale the inverted climbing wall and fall into the water below. There are walking trails and mountain biking trails, too.
End the day at the cool and shady Biergarten on the center island or stay for the River Jam concert series which features new bands every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Depending on your activity choices, day passes range from $30 to $65, and if you are watching, there is no entrance fee except for parking. All in all, the Whitewater Center offers entertainment for all ages at a cost considerably less than a day at a theme park! Whatever your chosen level of adventure, it will be a memorable trip!
